I do it all the time too. I glue up, then run a power planer over the dried glue joints. You can barely tell you've used 2 different boards, if you match the grain up pretty well.

What's that heat I feel behind me?

Oh- somebody lit a FIRE under my arse!


It's nearing 2:00 AM and I just got your message. I'll have some pics up tomorrow (Saturday) sometime. I promise. I actually got more than one-step-at-a-time done today. Tenons are all cut and nearly fitted (painstakingly so , 'cause I'm so anal), forty-fived on the ends to fit end to end in the mortises. Yay.

Glue-ups came out just fine, but for the record and if anyone else is reading this for educational benefit, be wary of where your mortises are going to line up in reference to the glue line. You don't want an edge of your mortise to fall right on one! A bear to pare.

Thanks Firemedic for bouncing back to me. I really appreciate the interest. I hope to not disappoint ( I guess we'll see tomorrow!).

Now, back to buggymans's Jeep-build.

Hm. Nothing.

That's a camera?

I guess I have to resize my pictures to get them to load. Sorry. Gimme a little more time. I spent quite awhile to get them taken and uploaded to the computer (I am completely new to photo-technologies post 1990's if you get my drift) so I'll get them uploaded (on-site) as soon as I can. DANG it all.

Bear with me.

I just put the top on for posterity.

Still have to make rails for the drawer, and the drawer itself.

Yep, what they said, that looks good. Can't tell they are laminated from the pics. Nice design too.

Very nice design and craftsmanship

I'm glad I found your question, I've been thinking about making a similar table for a while and wondered how to go about the legs.

Is it an optical illusion or did you taper the legs? I'm trying to figure out how to do that, any tips gratefully received

What kind of tools do you have? It can be done on a TS, BS, Jointer, or by hand...

Is it unheard of (probably not) or idiotic (likely) to laminate two or more boards of decent stock face to face to get say, 2.5 to 3 inches of stock for legs instead of just getting a thicker (and shorter) board to work with?
This is not Dumb at all. If you look at out sourced legs from Enkebol or Conestoga they are done thus way. I use 3/4" boards to laminate my legs. As stated above make sure there milled flat before glue up. Also look at end of board and see how the grain runs. You will see some with a u shape, you want to alternate them u to u back to back and vise versa
